That doesn't really seem all that elaborate from the picture. These guys had to know they were going to get in trouble for this. The guy saying that the murders were no big deal because so many people die every day is an idiot. It was stupid for him to do it, but as they pointed out he has a right to, he'll just have to face the consequences now.
Hysterical. That guy rules.
Random VT Douche : "How dare you? I'm disgusted!"
Costume guy : "Deal with it faggot."
QFT, his point is great too.
Here's the other pic:
Tragedy plus time equals funny.
People need to lighten up ... those costumes were funny.
What about my Christmas costume of a moppy hair, emo glasses, rifle, Omaha shirt and a picture of Santa with a target on his face?
People who are easily offended are douches.
The school is going to condemn these kids for bad taste?
How about a real intellectual authority condemns Penn State for their stupidity.
Gotta go "against the grain" on this one. I'll be the faggot and say it. People are still coping over whatever loss they had over this. And the victims don't exactly have a voice. Seeing it rubbed in their face kinda sucks. BUT! These families would have never known it happened had it never been reported. So I also blame the news. I find it tasteless. Even over time it's still tasteless. Thinking up the idea would be funny, but actually doing it is fucking wrong.
Edit: Should these guys suffer any consequences? Fuck no.
The lives lost in that shooting were worth no more than any other life. If you don't find it funny, move the fuck on. If making fun of one dead person is wrong then it's ALWAYS wrong. Anything else is hypocrisy.
People love being outraged and they love feeling morally superior. Yay! Lets all wag our fingers and feel better about ourselves! Anything to keep from looking inward I suppose.
It is wrong on a certain level. Some people can't handle having the dearly departed mocked. A lot of things are stupid to get offended by, but this isn't one of them. Obviously they shouldn't get in any trouble, but what they did was absolutely in poor taste.
Of course it's wrong. That's what makes it outrageous, and the outrageousness is what makes it funny. Besides, everything is wrong on a certain level. It's meaningless. They went to a private party, not a Virginia Tech gathering. Anyone who found themselves offended by the costume went out of their way to do so.
:clap::clap::clap: that's terrific
yea your a faggot
Lack of class and not that funny, but having questionable taste should never be a punishable act.
sure it's tasteless, but I'm sure the offended could find the power... somewhere, somehow, to ignore it. They may realize that they're better off doing that. Getting offended and stirring shit up is like picking scabs.
Have Virgina Tech play Penn State in football, in Blacksburg. VT will destroy them on the field, problem solved. Then have the students who dressed up, clean up the stadium.
